    Thanks for the kind words and thumbs up guys.

    Gnatty and Holdfast killing it today. Gnat - whats the deets on those shoes, Vass?


    This I am having a little hard time wrapping my head around. You say the first picture is too saturated in color, but are you saying then that only subdued ties are to go with navy? Navy is as neutral as black or white for me, and any intensity of any color tie can really go with it.

    Here, check out another picture from the Armoury lightbox and tell me what you think (of virtually the same colors up top, and with a real camera)

    I'd see SB's point better if Spoo's tie was all shiny and not so deliciously woolly.

    Also:

    Can you really do this? Wouldn't people (especially in MC) freak out seeing it buttoned that way?

    I could put everything I own short of a car, motorcycle and house into your bags and you'd still have spares.

    Yes, you can do it. It's an old look, but surprisingly, it's been modeled on recent runway shows. Not that that should influence you.

    Suit looks good, all in all. There are many other "first suit" failures, but this is a nice one. Have fun on your bespoke journey.

    What are some of the other "first suit failures"? If it's something obvious I don't want to make the same mistake on my next two suits. Thanks.

    Funny! Do yourself come up with? "You - Genius!" [​IMG]

    On clothes - I like the general idea, but with hints of flowers should still work. From a distance - as a whole is not bad, but close - shades of the picture and do not fit together at all. I also would have replaced the black shoes with brown.

    But in general - the very idea of common combinations of colors - very good, I like the concept. But there is discrepancy in the implementation of shades and patterns.

    I hope to see the edited version. Thank you!

    Thank you! This wool tie from Borsalino. I like it for a horizontal texture
